Pokemon Go is a great jump from traditional Pokemon Games. I feel that is a bit too familiar, but yet not too familiar. I will go into detail in a bit. It does give you the same excitement of “Catching them all” Because once emerged into the game and encounter Pokemon you have tried your best to find in traditional Pokemon Games. Pokemon Go will sting you like a Beedrill, and will get you addicted to it. Having Niantic Labs helping out with Pokemon Go. Will give it a bit of a Ingress feel to it. ( if you haven’t played Ingress download it at Google Play Store or IOS). Playing Pokemon Go for a Week I got stung by the Beedrill Addiction sting and so far I’ve catch Pokemon that I’ve been wanting to have in my Team. that are
I will not go into the mechanics of the game, due that is against the rules.
One thing I can say is that I mentioned earlier that is: “Is a bit too Familiar, but yet not too familiar.” Pokemon Go has the same feeling and objective when catching Pokemon in the Safari Zone. Is all about luck and instead of having camo Pokeballs you will get other type of Pokeballs. Another thing I like about Pokemon Go is that I feel more in control of the game. I can go anywhere and be anywhere. And just like Ingress you choose a faction. I am part of the Resistance, but in Pokemon Go I choose Red Team. Another Thing I like is the clothing customization. Now you have more control how you look and they also added darker shades of skin and various hair styles.
A few things I hate about it. I got to say the graphics maybe find a less animated background when viewing your Pokemon. Also Maybe a redesign of the Gym’s I feel that they are too big for the map and make it even more crowded. Another thing I don’t like about Pokemon Go. Is that the Gym Battles are too one direction. I feel that you should have more than one move the Pokemon should do. I also don’t like the idea that you have to catch the same Pokemon to get Candies to Level them up. The flicking option to throw the Pokeball is a bit too unresponsive. Pokeball will turn either left or right when flick motion ends. Lastly Pokemon Appear and are to far away to go into battle. I think it might be a algorithm that needs to be fixed.
Overall I love this game. Even if this game is on Beta you can see that it still has a lot of work to be done before it hits Users phones.
